Pangelinan weighs in on Police Review Commission

Guam - While they sit idle waiting for guidance from the Guam Legislature, Senator Ben Pangelinan says rules and regulations to guide the Guam Community Police Review Commission already exist.

In a letter addressed to commission chair Roland Taimanglo, Pangelinan says he's perplexed at the commission's passage of Resolution 1. The resolution recesses the commission until the legislature takes certain actions.

In his letter, Pangelinan notes that Guam law states the commission has the power to promulgate its rules and regulations.

To ensure the commission is able to do so, Pangelinan included in the miscellaneous provisions of budget act of 2014 an appropriation of $150,000. He recommends that the commission follow up with Governor Eddie Calvo on the request.

As we previously reported, the commission was established to review and investigate allegations of misconduct of GPD employees. Most recently, a complaint was made against Chief of Police Fred Bordallo, but the commission claimed it was unable to address it.

Taimanglo was not available to comment on the matter.
